Holly comes to Eng Flanders Group from the medical industry and has quickly ramped up on accounting for property management, now having expertise in multiple property management and accounting software systems. Her attention to detail, customer service skills and compassionate nature that allowed her to be successful working with patients with medical insurance issues have translated perfectly into helping EFG clients with their accounting needs. While she spent 13 years in her previous job, she was elated when the opportunity to join EFG was presented to her because she recognized how strong the EFG team is, and because a position at a fully remote company would be a great benefit because it would provide more time for her to spend with her family.

She is a passionate about photography and works as a freelance photographer on the side. When she is not working or taking photos, she can be found with her husband and two daughters playing games or relaxing in the outdoors.

Garrett Schnitzler Senior Programming Specialist

Garrett came to Eng Flanders Group in 2017 from Yardi’s commercial implementation team. He brings along his property management software implementation and programming expertise, a natural love for programing and finance, and a formal education in economics, computer science, and accounting.

He fancies himself as the perfect property management software Fixer. In his five years at Eng Flanders he has yet to meet a programming project he couldn't complete. When other implementers and programmers say it can't be done, Garrett says “challenge accepted!”

He jumped at the opportunity to join EFG because it is a fully remote company. It has given him the opportunity to work from 43 different countries from the Hawaiian Islands to the Pyramids of Egypt. After starting in California and traveling all across the world, Garrett recently found he needed to trade in his surfboard for a snowboard when he finally settled down in Prague with his wife.
